I'm having few issues with mana as a shadow priest (except on Valithria - that fight kills my mana because of things dying too fast for my poor little shadowfiend to actually do anything significant) and dispelling Frostbolt Volleys (Glyph of Mass Dispel is amazing). One of the things I noticed from the GDKP run I went on recently was that the other shadow priests were not using Shadowfiend on cooldown. With the levels of crit currently present on gear, and especially with 4-piece T10, Shadowfiend should be off cooldown *plenty.* And things get even easier with a restoration druid, destruction warlock, frost mage or retribution paladin in the raid - you really shouldn't have to worry much about Replenishment, because their methods of granting Replenishment are much more forgiving than a shadow priest's. Not that you shouldn't cast Mind Blast with Shadow Orbs stacked up, but still.Overall, I gained *3.5k* dps from prior to the patch, and Shadow's my offspec. I used to do ~9.5k on BQL as last bite, did 13.5k last bite. 9k on Princes was standard, 12k this last time. Even so, SW:D executes are amazing. This all was on Sunday, the 17th, so it was definitely after the nerfs. Oh, and Lifeblood and Berserking with Bloodlust and a Speed Potion = lolololol.
